Hello, I am greg084. Thank you for choosing Fixya.com to seek solutions to your issue.

looking at the specs for that model, it appears to have an s-video out jack. If your tv does not, you can purchase an svideo to RCA adaptor (if you have RCA cables ) cheaply ($1.12 at Amazon.com which is the most common connection type for older tvs, You will lose some video quality but not much.

Also, here's a good page at s-video.com explaining exactly how to connect this setup :



And the detailed specs for your machine:

I hope that this resolves your issue. Please feel free to visit FixYa.com with any other concerns or issues.

Thank You
Gregg084

Hello - It's really fairly simple. You need the S-Video cable and if you want sound a 3.5 mm stereo cable with whatever connector on the opposite end that your TV requires (probably stereo RCA male connectors.)

Here is an illustration direct from IBM about setting up the R51 to TV connection:

How to connect D510 to TV


I believe without dock it only has svideo or VGA out so your TV will need to have svideo in or VGA in. An alternative would be to use a streaming device such as chromecast.

The Lifestyle 38 has no HDMI output. It all depends on what inputs your TV has, which cable set up would be the best for you. Assuming that your TV has an SVideo input, you indeed can use the SVideo output of the Bose system, to get the DVD picture on your TV. However you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to the TV input of the LS 38 to get the TV sound to play over your LS 38. In case you don't have an SVideo connection on your TV, you can use the composite output of the Bose system and connect it to the video input of your TV (yellow in and outputs)

Connect Laptop HDMI to Receiver to TV via SVIDEO


you need a different type of cable to connect to your tv.a s-video will fit but not work.can't remember the name but it has to have more pins.besides that port is for projectors and cannot be used for anything else.you need a converter box like the one in the link ::::: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=laptops+s-video+cords&FORM=BIFD#focal=a85da1a40c404788d7e32f0bf01eab05&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cvs.k12.mi.us%2Ftiz%2Fimages%2Fsvid-cables.jpg


unless you got a big tv with a very good picture it isn't worth it.and a good graphics card in the comp.most tvs are fuzzy and unreadable.i've did it enough to know

Plugging my IBM T60 with a VGA - RCA Cable


does the laptop recognize that an external device is plugged in when you connect? you should hear a beep and be given options to adjust video settings. look at your keyboard and look for the picture on one of the keys (either number keys or fkeys) for the display change button. you usually have to hit the fn key and then the corresponding key.
iv had issues with this personally going from video out to svideo to rca video and ended up losing color...adapters are funny things. its possible that the adapter itself either doesnt work at all or just doesnt work with your laptop. wouldnt be the first time.

I want to hook up my laptop to my HDTV 42"


to connect your laptop to your tv you will require a connector wich would first convert your vga to svideo
you can get this converter at any good electronics store
this site will give you the type of connection required check your tv for the connections it will accept and choose the right cable

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


you need to have the same connections on both my laptop has svideo or vga connector, some have Hdmi which is the newest, but the tv and laptop have to bot have the same connectors, it may be a dvi, or any that I mentioned, then you need a cable for your video, and another for your audio, both the audio and video cables are run to the tv, the only one that has both audio and video is the HDMI which tv's from the last hear or 2 usually do have. Then depending which input the laptop is using which it will tell you where the connection for the tv is, you set it to that input and that turns your tv into a giant monitor
